Welcome!

Welcome to the official site of the Midwestern Chapter of the International Association of Exhibitions and Events! Our Chapter reaches a broad region of the Midwestern states – Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Northwest Indiana and Wisconsin. Our members are as diverse as our landscapes, but we are bound by one common thread - the Exhibitions and Events Industry.
